How To Make A Stuffed Turkey

Ingredients:

You need a turkey, a knife, and a sink with running water and a thermomometer to stick in the turkey to see how hot it is, and maybe some vegetables to stuff it.

Directions: First, you need to grab the turkey and pluck off all of the feathers. Once you finished that you rinse off your turkey with cold water. Then, you cut out it’s stomach and stuff it with vegetables that are cut up into small pieces. After that, you put it in the oven for about an hour. When you take it out you let it cool, and then you can eat a nice stuffed turkey (and you can make something else on the side with it if you want)!

If you trust a third grader to help you cook a turkey then read on. If your turkey does not weigh that much then it shouldn’t cook for that long. The tempature can be at 300. When it turns golden brown take it out of the oven and it should be delicous.
